Intel Announces Major Data Center Storage Advances with new SSD Form Factor and Innovative Designs

Submitted By:

Intel has announced major data center storage advances, re-claiming the tech giant’s memory technology leadership. The latest technologies advance data center storage and deliver innovative solutions so as to meet the challenges posed by the growing data dependency. These include the following:

Ruler Form Factor for Intel SSDs

The new ruler form factor shifts storage from the legacy 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch form factors that follow traditional hard disk drives, and the add-in card form factor that utilises PCIe card slots. It delivers the promise of non-volatile storage technologies to eliminate constraints on shape and size. 
 
The next-gen “ruler” form factor SSDs using Intel 3D NAND technology will enable up to 1PB in a 1U server. This is enough storage for 300,000 HD movies or 70 years of non-stop entertainment.

Dual Port SSDs

Dual port SSDs replace SAS SSDs and HDDs and, with new storage technologies, deliver more IOPS, more bandwidth and lower latency than SAS SSDs.

SATA SSDs for Data Centers

The Intel® SSD DC S4500 and S4600 Series combine a new Intel-developed SATA controller, innovative SATA firmware and the industry's highest density 32-layer 3D NAND. 
 
These storage-inspired SSDs preserve legacy infrastructure, ensuring a simple transition from hard disk drives to SSDs, while ensuring reduced storage cost, increased server efficiency and minimized service disruptions.
